Help me remember this movie...

I'm trying to remember what the title of this movie was. I think it was made in the 1960's or 1970's in the U.S. I remember watching it on TV on the Sunday Matinee show in the 1980's. The plot involved this millionaire who wanted to attack the Soviet Union, he had a small force which was to attack Russia by driving trucks across the polar ice cap. All I can remember was that in the end of the film his plan is thwarted by the Soviets, who send planes to bomb the ice, and the trucks sink to the bottom of the ocean. Any ideas?

Metal roofing on a shed...sheet and ridge cap installation?

I'm nearly the end of my first major building project...an 8'x8' shed with a foot overhang on all sides. I've just put up the trusses (purchased them, with a 4 in 12 pitch) and put 3/8" plywood on top. A neighbour gave me a whole bunch of metal sheet roofing in 12' lengths that I will cut down to length. My question is...he didn't give me a ridge cap and I have no idea what to buy or how to install that. Advice please? FWIW, I'm not 100 clear on the metal sheet installation either, so help there is appreciated too. Please keep in mind that this is just a shed and I don't expect anything even close to perfection! Thanks!

Caps made in Australia?

I'm looking for some plain (single colour, something basic, no logos -- I'll be sewing my own patch onto them) baseball cap style hats that are made in Australia. Bonds tell me they don't make them and, off hand, I don't know any other Australian clothing brands that manufacture locally. Does anyone know an Australian label for baseball caps that actually makes them in Australia? [more inside]

How does one properly break in a fitted baseball cap?

I've always disliked the way that fitted baseball caps (especially the MLB-standard New Era 5950) fit, as they sit too high on the crown of my head. I've heard of various mojo that one can perform (including cutting out the mesh at the front of the cap, showering in it, etc.) to make them fit better, but was wondering if there might be someone with more practical experience out there. This link is the only one I've found that's even slightly relevant, and remains a bit vague on the whole mesh-butchering thing.
